>> okay, item 3, chair's report. >> information item. >> great, colleagues i have a few things to report, first a few weeks ago i attended a rally, as part of a national series of rallies called stand up for transportation. where the transportation leaders in cities, across the united states, we gathered transit agencies and transit advocates to really publicly make clear how important it is for congress to fix the funding situation, for transportation, to reauthorize the federal highway trust funds, and to make a left handing term and sustainable fix. it was a very i think compelling and powerful rally, leaders from across the bay area, coming together and speaking with one voice, and this happened around the country as well and so i want to thank our transportation authority and chang did speak as well and so it was a
8:19 pm
positive thing and in addition for a few weeks ago there was a delegation from the united states, senate, of senior staff members from several different transportation authoring committee to tour the various transportation projects in the bay area, and we were and we did participate in that and i spoke to them as well and it was just, it is especially coming shortly after we were in washington, d.c., and meeting with some of these staff and senator and members of the congress, and just being able to bring them out, and show them physically what is happening in the bay area and not just having them hear the words but seeing the project is an effective way of making sure that the people understand how important it is to fix the funding situation. we also, i know that many of us participated in walk to workday recently which was really great, every year to see the changes, to our streets scape and some of the streets safety
8:20 pm
improvements, and year after year, and every time that we walk to work it is different and bet and her so that is a positive thing, and i also participated in bike and roll to school day, at mckinley elementary school and in addition, colleagues as i know that you, and you are aware, that we recently, announced a proposal through the metropolitan transportation commission to dramatically extend the bike share in san francisco in the bay area, and within two years, and if this is approved, which i hope that it will be, and san francisco will have 4500 bikes as part of our bike share program, and we will also see a significant expansion in oakland and san jose and berkeley and emeriville and so this is an exciting thing for the region and that is my report and if there are no questions or comments, we will open item three up for public comment, and so any public comment that is relevant to this item? >> yeah. >> relevant to the item?
8:21 pm
>> (inaudible)
8:22 pm
>> are there any public comment on item three? seeing none, public comment is closed this is an informational item, item four? >> executive director's report, this is aan informational item. >> i pleased to present this month's executive director's report, highlighting a number of great progress item that the chair spoke about several federal delegations that have visited our city to look at our
8:23 pm
complete streets project and to study the vision zero effort and to continue that report, the national highway and traffic administrator dr. rosenkind joined us as well as the state director of the office of traffic safety and undersecretary, of cal sta the state transportation agency also joined as kate white for a day long event to focus on safety and safety policy in the city so that they can be across the state and the nation and it was an honor to participate in this and i would like to thank and congratulate tim, and as well as commissioner kim who chairs the vision zero committee and joins the mayor in welcoming the delegation in the morning and in the afternoon there were a series of panels and our director, helped to facilitate a session in particular about funding and connecting our good work here to the need for additional infrastructure funding and in addition to safety and it was
8:24 pm
the theme of the day. and in terms of state legislation, i would like to highlight, senate bill, 16 by the chair of the transportation committee, jim bell and the senator released a new plan for revenues which includes a number of proposals as a package to help to solidify the infrastructure in the road and street funding and about 3 and a half billion dollars over the next tief years and we appreciate this proposal and it sort of combines with the speaker, tonightny atkin proposal and hopefully they will come together on the efforts that will under pin the road maint nens needs, and the vehicle, license fee and the vehicle registration fee and weight fees and a combination of these and i do want to highlight that the proposal would have implications for san francisco, and the ability to use our authority under senator leno's bill that allowed us and authorized us to do a vehicle license fee, and the vehicle
8:25 pm
license fee proposal as contemplated under the mayor's transportation, 2030, task force would allow us to take that fee back up to the 2 percent level but senator bell's bill will also use that capacity so that we may want to seek amendments and we will have that conversation in the finance committee. >> and the chamber of commece visited san francisco and we met with the directors of cal transand the cdc and the california, transportation and the high speed rail authority and we are partnering in so many ways with the state and including on our electrickfiation of cal train, and also with chui and leno who spoke about the goals of the session and the goals and priorities are focused on housing and as well as the transportation funding challenge and appreciate their leadership and hopeful to see some really great developments
8:26 pm
on cap and trade and fund and on long term infrastructure improvements, but the regional level, the fund area has kicked off again this is the region's transportation plan and sustainable strategy and so we invite the public to join the first workshop in san francisco which they will hold on may, 13th from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the hotel and we will be l tabling along with the system agencis in san francisco and the transit operators to share with the public how regional planning effects our city and our ability to meet the housing and transportation challenges of growth as well as to help address the existing challenges in every part of staoet and we will talk about the link to the san francisco transportation plan, which the body adopted to the main input and we will be kicking that effort off in the coming weeks and months with the other city agencies and the
8:27 pm
chair talked about the walk to workday, and i just wanted to highlight and thank commissioner yee for being at the converse rally for the week and my kids are happy that they hosted them this year and really the activities expand all 90 schools throughout the school districts and 90 of the schools and importantly, the sf unified school district board member sandra lee was there to announce the commitment in endorsing vision zero and that was a great rally and event and more and more kids are biking and rolling and taking transit to school each day and thank the schools for supporting the efforts. >> the feasibility study has completed the final out reach, and they have been tabling it
